Under the right stress anything is possible
This program allowed these fine American actors to really show that when called upon each of them could deliver a fine performance. Think of it, only 25 minutes to be shared by a few actors but they were expertly directed to show the terrible plight world war put upon them. Each held up his end of the story, even the bombs took away their fragile communication lines.
